Earlier this week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a declaration for state agencies to investigate gender-affirming services for trans youth as "child abuse."
Abbott's declaration followed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's suggestion that "elective" gender-affirming treatments could "constitute child abuse" under Texas law.
Following the news, Elliot Page issued a statement to Variety in support of Texas's trans youth.
“I am horrified by the inhumane and downright dangerous declarations by the Texas Governor and Attorney General," he said.
"Trans youth deserve gender-affirming care and to be able to live their true, authentic selves without fear and oppression."
"I stand with trans youth and their families."
On Instagram, Elliot referred to the declaration as "horrific" and encouraged his followers to follow writer Chase Strangio "to stay updated on this and all the anti trans bills moving across the country."
